That almost eliminates Liam Neeson from returning as well which i don't think is a good idea. If Qui-Gon Jinn is to get a movie it has to be solely focused on him, and Dooku has to be left out of the equation.
You could easily recast Count Dooku. Christopher Lee is a film legend no doubt about it, but he played an elderly version of his character in the late stages of his life. If Dooku was 80 in AotC and Qui-Gon was 55 in TPM then the movie would take place about 40-45 years prior and Dooku would be in his Late 30s. Not to mention Count Dooku wasn't an iconic character, he was in the last 45 minutes of Clones and the first 15 of Sith. As long as they found a talented younger actor (preferably with some stage training) then it could be pulled off.
